Quackery: TRCN begins monitoring of schools in 12 states


Registrar/Chief Executive of Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) Professor Segun Ajiboye at the weekend in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital said that the council will commence school monitoring in two states each in the six geopolitical zones across the federation beginning from February.

Ajiboye while speaking to journalists on Saturday disclosed that the school monitoring program was to ascertain the total number of qualified teachers being used to teach Nigerian pupils in those states.

He added that the council had engaged consultants to carry out the exercise, which will include determining those licensed to teach and those yet to be licensed, as well as those registered and those who were yet to register with the council.

Ajiboye noted that the consultants have eight weeks to submit their report, “which will form the basis for weeding out unqualified teachers as well as advising States rightly”.

He said that the council was interested in ensuring that it did not derail from its mandate and would organize a retreat that will be directed by eminent educationists to further improve on the human capital at the disposal of the Council.

“Also this year, the development Teacher Information Systems (TIS) will become functional.

“Parents in Nigeria will able to know those who are teaching their children in school whether they are quack or professional teachers.

“They will be able to make decisions on where to take their ward to for education purposes. The TIS will be useful for knowing the spatial distribution of teachers in Nigeria, their location and their states”, he said.
